Eryn Erickson, 28, is owner and creator of So Worth Loving clothing line. The recording artist from Atlanta was looking to make some merchandise to help promote her band, Eddy. So what started as an offer to spray-paint T-shirts for free with the words “So Worth Loving” ended up turning into more. A lot more.
Eryn calls it a “lifestyle.” A lifestyle that has taken off with, er…a life of its own.
At first, Eryn did the free spray-painting for friends. That grew into friends of friends, and next thing she knew, her inbox was flooded with amazing stories. Some of those stories brought her to tears. That is when it occurred to Eryn that her concept is so much more than just a cheesy line of merch. It’s a new way of thinking and being!
In this video Eryn tell her story, beautifully we might add!
